express bus on a slow day

it took them one songs length
to stop clutching their left cheeks
with their palms like
the way they clutch hamburgers.

they had forgotten how much they loved to hurry,
for the afternoon bus.

and there was nothing left they had to do
and there was nothing left, except ALL OF IT,
that they wanted.
